CREATING SUPPORTIVE OUTCOMES FOR YOUR CHILDREN

If you have minors, decisions that will affect them are among the most important to consider.
I can help you and your spouse reach agreements on decisions such as:

Legal Custody

The legal authority to make important decisions regarding your child, such as medical care, education and religious upbringing, to name a few. When appropriate, joint custody can be awarded allowing both you and your spouse to make these decisions together.

Physical Custody

The determination of your child’s primary place of residence, which can affect things such as your child’s safety, care giving, education and routine. I consider each of these aspects when developing creative solutions to benefit you, your spouse, and most importantly, your child.

Negotiating Fair Alimony Requirements

Alimony, formally referred to as spousal maintenance, has been adjusted in New York. Courts now review 20 factors, such as the duration of the union and the earning ability of each party, to determine payment terms. In contrast, temporary alimony is usually based on a set calculation. If your situation requires traditional alimony, I will make a compelling case in support of the fairest possible result.

Hire a divorce attorney you can count on to take care of the important things. Speak with Dina M. De Giorgio today.

Negotiating Fair Child Support Requirements

Noncustodial parents are required by law to pay child support until their children turn 21 years of age. The amount of child support is based on a formula that examines the income of both parents, although other factors are considered as well. When special circumstances exist or financial information is misleading or inaccurate, I will bring that to the court’s attention for the fairest possible outcome.

Visitation Rights

Each parent has a right to spend meaningful time with their child and be a part of his or her life. I can help you stay involved in your child’s life, even if your child lives with your spouse.

If and when it’s not possible to reach agreement on these matters, the courts will make determinations based on what they believe to be in the best interests of your child. Should the matter go before a judge, I will make the strongest possible argument on behalf of an arrangement that enables your child to grow up in a safe, supportive environment.

Ensure your children are taken care of by hiring a New York divorce attorney with a successful track record.
